's against illegal guns. founded by new york city mayor michael bloomberg. yesterday they went to washington to make their case for stricter gun control. basically the group wants to ban assault weapons and high capacity ammunition magazines. they also want background checks for every gun sold in america. and they would federalize a few gun crimes but not many. in order to get attention for their cause, the mayor's group needs some high powered, pardon the pun, folks backing them up. enter a few celebrities, including chris rock. >> i am just here to support the president of the united states. the president of the united states is, you know, our boss. but he is also, you know, the president and the first lady are kind of like the mom and the dad of the country. >> bill: wow. so mr. rock is supporting tighter gun control because that's what president obama and mrs. obama want. and mr. rock, above all, wants to be respectful to the presidency. quite a change. >> bush is unbelievable, man. this guy's un[bleep] believable. he ain't the worst president of the united states. he is the worse presid
